This Hotel was fabulous it was everything we hoped it would be. The Rooftop Terrace Restaurant was rather expensive but the food & service were excellent & the view was breathtaking. The Pool area was very well laid out with a Large pool & Bar facilities. Spa facilities are worth exploring. We had a massage treatment which was very relaxing.... More

This was a quick weekend getaway and it was just right. Cost were about 260Euros so a little pricey but it was worth it. Hotel was very pretty, chic. Rooms were well appointed. My only complaint is that it seems in all of Italy the beds blow! They are way too hard, single mattress, and seem cheap. Everywhere you go... More

We stayed two nights in this rather luxurious four star hotel, but the restaurant puts a cloud on those stars. The appetizer dish was salty, and the main course had little flavor. I was so turned off that I have forgotten about the dessert. And I was hungry! Even when pressed for convenience to dine in the restaurant on the... More

When approaching the hotel, one feels that one is entering an authentic non chain hotel. The hotel lives up to this feeling. The setting is beautiful with wonderful views of the Ligurian coastline and as it sits in the bay also the far side of Rapallo. We had a wonderful large suite, with a fantastic jacuzzi and a very good... More

The hotel is located about 15 minutes from the centre of Rapallo, providing you avoid the road path and use the coastal one it is a very nice walk. The bus, which goes every hour takes you to the centre and also Sainta Margherita (45 min bus for 3 euros, 13 min taxi 25 to 40 euro's). I strongly advise... More

We stayed here for a week and had a superior sea view room which was definitely worth upgrading to. The view across the bay of Portofino was beautiful. Very friendly reception staff, room was lovely and spacious and a lovely bathroom. Very clean, the housekeeping staff were excellent. Huge pool with plenty of sun loungers. Not much 'saving of sunbeds'... More
